Question about Optoma H27 DLP Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Optoma H27 I just bought my projector off ebay and when I received it, I hooked it up to my PS2. The picture was good for about 2 minutes and then the pictures started to flicker and the colors started to bleed and turn hazy and purplish. Do I need a special cable for hookup or is there a solution available. Maybe the guy just sold me a bum projector :( He said it worked great.

    I have the same problem with mine.....but it takes about 40 minutes for it to start least it does when I watch movies or TV. It just started happening and I've had the projector for about 3 years. I changed the bulb to no avail!

    Same thing here!! i've read that it could be a color wheel problem. I have taken mine apart and the color wheel has red, green and yellow? Not sure but i think the yellow is supposed to be blue...

I have an OPTOMA H27 projector, I am experiencing problems with the quality of the video images displayed. I set the focus by using the internal menu as an image reference. However when I view DVD/Video...

if u are using the composite video the try component video. composite video will dive u a dull image than component one. also check the distance between the projector an screen.Make sure the projection screen is between the required distance 4.9 to 40.7 feet (1.5 to 12.5 meters) from the projector.

Color problems

i don't know if this will work but..... I have an Optoma h27 and we were having problems with the color and ours is mounted on the ceiling in inverted also; and after two years we started having color problems, come to find out that on the menu there is a option for high altitude and that had been turned to the "off" position (probably by our kids resetting all the options and not turning this one back on)..... after taking it to a tech that cleaned it for $97.00 and said there was no problems he could find, we played around with the remote/menu and came across this high altitude option and when we saw it was on the "off" position, we put it to the "on" position and another fan inside the projector came on and that helps to keep the inside of the projector cool at all time and helps from the color becoming weird..... Try this on yours and hopefully that will solve your problem.

Optoma h27 colour issues

Check to be sure that the projector is in the correct mode. If it is expecting an RGB signal and you send it (Y,Pr,Pb), you will see the picture as you describe. The same works for the above reversed. In all likelyhood, you are sending RGB and the projector is expecting the other.
